Project title:

Increasing breastfeeding and Aboriginal children’s health through culturally appropriate and responsive support

Chief Investigator:

Associate Professor Philippa Middleton

Funding Amount:

$75,000

Recipient:

SAHMRI

Overview:

Breastfeeding is one of the most important health behaviours for survival, growth, development and overall health of the child, yet only half of Aboriginal babies are being breastfed at 6 months, and only 7% are exclusively breastfed. Infant and child nutrition, especially breastfeeding, is consistently identified as one of the highest priorities for action by Aboriginal communities in SA.
